The information theory approach is suggested to the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) problem for negatively curved homogeneous and isotropic Universe. Namely, the Kolmogorov complexity of anisotropy spots of Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) radiation sky maps is proposed as a new descriptor for revealing crucial cosmological information, particularly on the curvature of the Universe. Such profound descriptor can be especially valuable while analyzing the data of forthcoming space- and ground-based experiments MAP, Planck surveyor, CAT, etc.
